Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This method has totally altered our ability to change a full mouth of teeth, and we now have the ability to install fixed teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is an enormous advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the operation, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to alternative methods.
We begin by planning out the operation, and start with a scan to examine the patient and discover the best location to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the operation has also advanced greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can walk away with a full mouth implant or temporary bridge in a single day. The non-permanent bridge is then substituted with a permanent one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are being used for patients with several absent teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew up food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Replacing these with implants can remove any stress around a moving denture. We are regularly able to implant a bridge attached to the implants if the missing teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Tooth Implants
When a single tooth is missing, an implant is often the best answer. Implants are usually more robust and longer lasting that other options, and do not have issues live slipping or influencing speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone round the implant becomes backed by the implant, preventing further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional loading that could cause issues in the future.
